Exe Equestrian Club took part in a very successful Open Show, sponsored by Leesons of Honiton and Corner House Veterinary Surgery, held at Nutwell Court, writes Mark Briggs.
As the sun beat down riders of all ages took part in a variety of classes. Each discipline produced a champion rider and horse, with the Champion of Champions being Milly Pring and her horse Nikita Thiberger.
The class winners were as follows; In the Show Jumping section there were wins for Sophie Griffin on Billy Gruff, Milly Parr on Kilterne Jennifer, the Champion Show Jumper Isabelle Ball on Nadia, Sarah Jamieson on Dromores Dream Lad and also for Sophie Inglis on her horse Winchester 111.
In the Working Hunter section there were wins for Katie Dykes on My Fancy Man, Tegan Holdaway on Master Mickey Finn, Katie Read on Johnny, the Champion Working Hunter Josie Bruford on Bruach Na Haille and a double win for Rea Lerwill on Brownscombe Florrucci.
In the Showing section there were wins for Francesca Lawrence on Rosark Ellouise, Gabriella Sweetland on Langa Illusion, Rebeka Radford on Pika Boo, Jessica Boulton on Wellhouse Candytuft, two wins for Amanda Williams on the Champion Show Horse Pentrefelin Miss May, the Champion of Champions Mille Pring on the Champion Show Pony Nikita Thiberger, Alice Crawfird on Beenleighford Flapjack, Christine Bowyer on Mozart, Teegan Holdaway on Master Mickey Finn and finally for Alyson Retter on Riad.
To round off the days events, in the Horse & Hound section Sophie Inglis won, with Caz Addy and Sarah Jamieson finishing second and third respectively.
The season doesn’t end there! It continues with a Summer Novice Horse & Dog Show, again at Nutwell on Sunday July 7, followed by the Summer Pleasure Ride on July, 28.
The club has been in existence for 30 years, and is currently organised by a very small, all female committee, who are finding it increasingly difficult setting up for these events and clearing away at the end of the day relying, on volunteers who themselves have various commitments.
If anyone would be prepared to come on the Friday before an event, or on the actual day to help clear away, they would be delighted to hear from you. You can get in contact with them on 07971-260269 or via there website www.exe.equestrian.co.uk
